Seward, Alaska: Harbor Town at the Start of the Iditarod Trail

It's not uncommon to see local fishermen with 400-pound halibut or stringers of silver salmon at fish-cleaning stations in Seward. The harbor town, which sits at the northern tip of Resurrection Bay in Kenai Fjords National Park, is surrounded by a bounty of wildlife; take a harbor cruise in the summer, and you'll likely spot humpback whales, harbor seals, and dolphins. Moose, black and brown bears, and mountain goats are year-round residents of the park's glaciers and fjords.

The Iditarod Trail begins in Seward and runs more than 1,000 miles to the northwest. The actual race takes place in March, but visitors can take dogsled rides along the trail all year long.

In the 1800s, Seward was an important fur trapping and gold mining city and a transportation hub, earning the nickname "Gateway to Alaska." You can learn more about the town's past at the history museum, which is open daily in the summer. There are also plenty of restaurants, art galleries, and shops lining the small downtown area.
